I was about to mention that point as well (and someone else already mentioned it below). I think the main issue here is that this kind of thing happens all the time to all kinds of people. People have been complaining to FB about it for years. So it's easy for someone to be especially frustrated to hear it coming from her, especially claiming that it's just simple human decency after all the very non-decent things FB has done.

Edit: quotes seemed to be jacked at the moment

Yup. If this was important FB should have a "require permission before being shared" function, but even then there's the old right-click-save-as-repost thing.

A point of issue with that though, most sites will prevent you from doing that with clever scripting; Facebook doesn't even put THAT security measure up on their site.

Oh, and here's the main gist of the issue that has been glossed over by the article writer; The picture was tweeted out by the news reporter because they saw it on their news feed. They saw it on their news feed because they're Facebook friends with Marks' OTHER SISTER. The issue here is completely internal. Either internal to Facebook's shitty security settings, or internal to Zuck's own FAMILY not being able to make sense of Facebook's shitty security settings.

Quite fitting I think.
